    split ur key pal , and stick a wee bit of cardboard paper behind the batery as the contacts tend to break so just make sure there in there wee holes and put the cardboard paper behind the battery and build it up and should be good as new again mate mine was

    Try resoldering where the battery holder connects to the PCB, they are well known for having broken solder joints where these pins fit to the board.
    Be warned though, it's a fiddly job. You will need a fine tipped soldering iron.
